5 Things You Need to Know Today, April 7

Lots of ways to help today.

Today is Thursday, April 7. Here are five things you need to know:

Not too shabby: Sunny today with highs in the upper 40’s.

Quite the little helper: The cutie planting flags in the photo running with today’s column is Lola Velic. Her mom and family members are taking part in Sunday’s Walk MS event in Cambridge, and Lola wanted to help out by decorating with the flags. Good luck to the team this weekend, and if you want to donate toward the cause, visit their team page here.

Grants available: Do you have a child with medical needs not covered by your insurance? United Healthcare’s Children’s Foundation is accepting grant applications from Massachusetts families. The grants awards go up to $5,000, which would definitely help a family in need. You can apply for the grants here

Howdy, pard’: Line Dancing returns to the Senior Center at 6:15 p.m.

Laughter is the best medicine: Head down to the Irish-American Club tonight for Comedy for a Cause 4, the annual Medford VNA fundraiser. Enjoy some stand up, silent auctions and a buffet. Tickets are $40 and the doors open at 6:30 p.m..
